Video Shows Priest Slap Baby During Baptism

Angry priest slaps baby who wouldn’t stop crying during baptism

The priest, who is speaking French, is seen blessing the baby and the child begins crying.

A disturbing video has emerged of a priest slapping a baby across the face as he administers baptism.

He then slaps the child on the cheek, loudly enough that the impact can be heard in the video, recorded from a couple of metres away.

The horrified parents are at first anxious when the priest holds the baby in a vice-like grip to stop him from wailing.

Another person said: "If that video would end with the father giving the priest a very strong bitch slap it would be flawless".

The man who appears to be the child's father then steps in, prising the child out of the priest's grip, even as the cleric seems unrepentant and tussles for possession of it. "I will scream louder than you so calm down". Added another: "A priest slaps my baby and I'm putting him on the cross".

The clergyman hit the child in the face with his left hand after he lost his temper when the child would not stop crying during the ceremony.

Many users on Facebook were quick to point out the long-standing history of abuse associated with the Catholic Church.

"And yet another reason why I'm not bringing up my kids as Catholics", wrote a Reddit user. "Or any family. This is prevalent around the world".

Internet users are confused, anxious and appalled at the priest's actions, with one person writing, "That was uncalled for".
